Revenge of the Fat Cats (DVD)

RRP: £19.99
Available from all good canoe shops and online at

The second offering from the band of travelling UK whitewater addicts that are The Fat Cats. This DVD actually contains two separate films. The first is a documentary style film about a recent exploratory expedition to Greenland. This is pioneering stuff and they endure all manner of hardships in the search to find world-class whitewater. It’s entertaining and informative stuff and in these days of whitewater centres and guided holidays it’s good to know that there’s a younger generation of UK whitewater paddlers out there prepared to put it on the line in search of new rivers to run. The second film is Revenge of the Fat Cats and it returns once more to the more familiar whitewater action film format of cool tunes and hardcore action. The destinations come thick and fast Laos and the mighty Mekong River, unexplored creeks of the terrace in British Columbia and more. What shines through is the Cats desire to find new places to paddle and the fun they have while doing it. It’s a good watch and instead our usual urge to reach for the mute and fast forward buttons on the remote we enjoyed it all the way through.
